It was Tokyo. It was always Tokyo, one of the greatest and largest monstrosities on this earth. I finally found my way down to it the other day, finally got to see its beauty with my own eyes. It was everything I dreamed of and more. The people were fabulous, the fashion was wonderful, the towers spectacular. Everything. Even the trains brought a smile to my face. It has taken leaving the cities hours behind me to realize that they will always be my proper home like this. Rural Japan has been an incredible place to stay, beautiful and untouched, the land of the Kami’s creation. But Tokyo is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. And I know that I must return to the land of men soon no matter what.
My internship is coming to a close in just three days’ time. The things I have learned and the maturity I have gained are all becoming painfully apparent as I prepare to say my goodbyes and leave forever. I have learned how to function in this company and this country in a way I hadn’t expected. I’ve been assigned to teach the other interns to do what I’ve been doing lately. I’m that close to leaving. My boss told me that they struggled to run the fires and the baths without me this past weekend. So now I have to teach them the fires and baths in only four days’ time. This will be the challenge of my final week. I hope I can teach them quick enough, and if not, well I’ll be gone.
